March is Women's History Month, and it's a time to reflect on all the amazing women who have helped shape this world. Women like Shirly Chisolm and Fannie Lou Hamer.
When I think of the incredible women who have inspired me, there are many, but the first to come to mind is my daughter, Anissa.
Anissa was diagnosed with OCD as a teenager. She worked diligently to manage her mental illness and find ways to achieve her goals. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't see myself moved to reach for my dreams, and it's because of her.
This month, let us appreciate all the fantastic women in our lives!
Speaking of inspirational women, attending Senator Geraldine's Event, "Resistance and African American History at Icon Park was an honor.
It's more important than ever that we learn the history of our country.
I was honored to join Democratic LGBTQIA Caucus President Nathan Bruemmer and Senator Torres on a panel hosted by Representative Carlos Smith to discuss legislation that will impact the community.
It is always my honor to do this work on behalf of my constituents.
The next 60 days are gonna be hectic, but I am excited to serve!
Yours in Service, Rita!
